there parabens in Trienelle?
Some of our products do have very small amounts of parabens. They are
used to keep the products from bacterial overgrowth because alternative
ingredients to date have not bee acceptable. However, we try to make
our products as natural as possible and are continually making changes
to improve them.

Does it come with a higher SPF. I like to us
SPF 30 to 50?
No, Trienelle’s daytime face creams all have an SPF of 15. For
most people in most daily sun exposure situations, that should be enough.
However, if you’re anticipating being in a high sun-exposure situation,
you may wish to apply a high-SPF sunscreen product over your Trienelle
Can I use the Trienelle creams around
Yes. However, you want to make sure not to get any Trienelle product
in the eye itself. But, they are fine if applied around the eye area.
Some people may find that the sunscreen bothers the eye if applied too
close. If so, simply avoid applying it too close to the eye. Many users
love Trienelle’s Eye Reviving Gel for the gentle and supportive
help it gives to the sensitive tissues around the eye.
Why does the cream make my skin red and or
Most users have no difficulties with Trienelle’s facial creams.
However, because they are actively at work with your skin, it’s
not surprising that some people could have some difficulty. The most
likely cause of redness for most users would be that the products have
AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) in them at a 5.0% concentration. At this
level, it is quite uncommon to cause reactions, but may be too much
for occasional individuals if the redness doesn’t go away after
a few days of use.
Another possible cause of redness is that you might have an allergy
to one or more ingredients in the cream. If you have a known ingredient
you’re sensitive to, you may want to look at the Trienelle product
ingredient list here. Of course, if your skin is sensitive to any product,
you should discontinue its use.
What makes my eyes sting?
This is an uncommon occurrence. But, the most likely cause is that the
sunscreen in Trienelle’s cream is bothering you. You should find
that to be less of a problem if you don’t apply the product too
close to your eyes.
This cream has become brown and it smells different. Should I worry?
You don’t need to worry, but you should not use the product. When
the product ages, active ingredients in it can turn dark, but shouldn’t
significantly change the smell. But, if the color has changed, it’s
lost a lot of its activity and should be discarded.
Is this product all natural?
Trienelle products are as natural as we can make them, consistent with
our goal of delivering skincare that really works. That’s why
you’ll find so many botanicals, nutrients and other natural ingredients
in our products. However, sometimes it’s very helpful to use certain
ingredients that are not technically ‘natural’. We weigh
those decisions carefully, always trying to find the best balance between
staying as natural as possible, yet giving you an effective product.
Do you have any vitamin C in your cream?
Some Trienelle products do use vitamin C, most notably the AcneRecovery
Repair Lotion. You can review ingredients here.
Can I use this cream on my skin cancer?
While Trienelle should be part of the plan for maintaining skin health,
when there is an issue of cancer, it is critical to rely on the advice
of your physician. We encourage you to take this question to him/her.
Can I use Trienelle’s facial
creams on my arms if I want to or is it only for the face?
Trienelle’ facial creams are wonderful for skin elsewhere in your
body. They can be used on your arms, legs or torso without concern.
In fact, here’s
a photo of a woman’s legs and how Trienelle’s face cream
helped a chronic dry skin problem she’d had for years.
How do you determine the cost for shipping

Do you have this in larger containers?
Some Trienelle products are available in more than one size. Check the
individual product pages for more info.
Do you have small samples of Trienelle?
Sorry. At the present time, we do not.
I can’t figure out how to get
the product out of the jar. Please help!
Trienelle creams come in a protected, air-tight dispenser that is rather
unusual. So, if you’re having trouble figuring it out, you wouldn’t
be the first.
Look on the underside of the top flap of the little box your cream came
in. You’ll notice a small diagram demonstrating how to pump the
product. (If you’ve lost the box, click here to see the diagram
you’d have seen.)
Here’s how you do it. Unscrew the cap from the jar. Use two fingers,
one on each side of the top rim of the jar, to press down on the top
surface of the jar. You may need to repeat a few times to prime the
pump. [If you still have trouble, see the next question, below.]
I know how to use the dispenser, but
I can’t get it to pump? Am I doing something wrong? What should
We pack a lot of goodies into the formula which can make it a bit thick.
So, if the jar has been sitting on its side or upside down in shipment
or on your shelf, it's sometimes hard to get started.
Put the cap on your jar, turn it upside down and hit it firmly against
a hard surface to shake the cream loose. Do it about 10 times, then
try to pump. If that didn’t solve it, try it again.
If those steps didn’t do it we suggest that you let the jar sit
in a sink of hot water for 15 minutes. Turning warm allows the lotion
to soften up. Try shaking it loose again by hitting it against a hard
If that doesn't work for you, please call us back and we'll be happy
to arrange to replace the product.
the order of ingredients in the ingredients list matter?
product regulations require only that those ingredients which are present
in a concentration above 1% to be listed in decreasing order of presence
in the formulation. For most products, that means the first 3-6 ingredients
on the list. Most manufacturers therefore shift the order of the remaining
ingredients in order to avoid giving their ‘recipe’ to competitors.
The downside of this reality is that you cannot conclude that an ingredient
is present in substantial amounts in a formulation just by where it
is in an ingredient list. The best protection is to purchase products
from a manufacturer whose science and reputation you trust.
salicylic acid create an initial breakout?
it should not cause an acne breakout in the AcneRecovery products. And,
where present in Trienelle products, only the occasional person has
some initial sensitivity with some redness. This generally is transient,
as the skin adjusts to it.
salicylic acid and alcohol cause dry skin?
ingredient can cause dryness if used at high enough levels. Alcohols,
if present in a Trienelle product at all, are present in only incidental
concentrations and should not create a problem with dryness. Salicylic
acid concentrations can be high enough to cause some dryness for some
individuals, but our products are formulated in a manner that minimizes
that risk with moisturizing agents.

seems like I'm not getting as good of results as I'd hoped from using
Reductase-5. Do you have any suggestions?
users report that when they used Reductase-5 only on very limited areas
of affected by facial hair, they didn't do as well as when they applied
it like they would a moisturizer. You could try applying the lotion
more broadly for a month or two. If it doesn't make a difference in
that time, your skin may not be sensitive to Reductase-5's effect.
